A site that will help you determine how much you can stock

Hi guys,

I have been doing aquarium hobby for over 7 years now and have had some idea on a computer program that can help me determine how to stock my own tanks.

I've recently created a site that can help you determine how much you can stock for your given tank. This is something I coded using my own spare time and it is far from complete. If you are interested, please try this out:

AqAdvisor

Please feel free to leave any comments. I do plan to update the site approx. once every week or so.

Just to give you some feeling, this program does NOT use a simple formula such as inch per gallon. It maintains a significant DB of fishes with 19 attributes per each species. Each species also features its own bioload for their given sizes hence not all fishes are handled the same. Surface area of the water is more important than the total volume of the tank.

Thanks!

Sorry that was misleading in the application. I've changed it to "Search String". It allows you to enter a portion of a species name so that you can locate them easily from the list. As an example, you can type "cory" and it will narrow down the list with only those whose names contain the word "cory".

I think the site is an excellent tool to assist with stocking your tank. Very informative. I bookmarked it and will share it with others if that is ok with you.

Awesome!!!!

Not yet. DB has the attributes but the program doesn't use them yet. It will detect if fishes are too large for the given tank size for now.

What is the meaning of Your tank is 72% stocked? Is it mean that it's 72% full?
